Cumbria's freak weather blamed on Hurricane Gert

Cumbria's freak weather blamed on Hurricane Gert

Hurricane Gert has become the seventh named storm of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season and, at category two, it is the strongest one of the year so far.

PARTS of Britain are set to bake in 28C sunshine today as Hurricane Gert brings in warm weather as forecasters predict a glorious Indian summer.

Areas in the south and east are due to receive a blast of warm air with sunny conditions.

The forecast is hot, take a look at the sexiest weather women from around the world.

If a paddock is prone to damage during a time of wet weather, the use of 12-hour grazing blocks can keep the amount of damage done to a minimum.

However, it's a different picture in the south with a dry and sunny Saturday followed by a blustery changeable Sunday with temperatures reaching 25C in places.

But for those in southern and eastern parts of the United Kingdom, temperatures could soar as the weather system bringing tropical air arrives on Sunday, with the mercury forecast to reach up to 27C in the south east on Monday.

The weather is likely to be more settled by midweek, but it is unclear what to expect over the August bank holiday until the pressure clears.

At the moment, Gert is travelling eastwards across the Atlantic towards Ireland. "The wet and windy weather will most likely be to the north and west, so Scotland, Northern Ireland, north west England and North Wales will have a wet and windy weekend".
